“A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are built for.” - John A. Shedd

John A. Shedd obviously missed Pearl Harbor, but there more antique and famous stories of entire fleets sunk in the harbor.

@manuelcaeiro You are technically right sir. 😂 👍 Those quotes are certainly too generic to encompass it all but imagine if the quote was:

"Most ships should be quite safe under normal conditions of temperature and pressure for the limited lifespan of a boat as claimed by the manufacturer, excluding extraordinary events, including, but not limited to, wars, extreme weather, tsunamis, sabotage, human operator error, asteroids etc. Nevertheless you should also be ok sailing it."

Looks like a legal text! 🤔
